Large Moonstone Sea Urchin Pendant in Sterling Silver and 18K Gold
$275.00 – $595.00
While tiny urchins are rare and almost impossible to find, it is equally amazing to find a large intact urchin that has been the snack of a gull and discarded on the beach to tumble in the surf. Ever since I made the first little urchin I’ve been wanting to make a larger one. This urchin has a presence, it makes a statement.
The base of this urchin was handcarved in wax and carefully hollowed out for wearability. I then individually applied hot wax spheres to create the familiar texture. After a mold was made it was cast using the lost wax method, cleaned up and finished like most of my pieces with a stippled texture.
This pendant features a 5 millimeter rose cut moonstone that reflects that same mysterious blue as the sky on the sea. Moonstones possess many amazing properties. They have the power to open the heart chakra, and are empowering when making decisions. Having a calming energy, they bring harmony and balance as well.
Available with or without a stone, visit the *contact page* to custom order an urchin in gold, platinum, or with your favorite gemstone.
Pendant measures 1” long by ¾” wide and comes on an 18” chain, other lengths available.
